COVID-19 Impact on Wagyu Beef Market
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted beef production, supply chain, and prices, resulting in a severe socioeconomic crisis around the world. Initially, the prices of beef and beef products rose due to lower production and increased demand from panic buying. Later on, however, due to lockdown restrictions and lower consumer purchasing power, both beef production and demand were significantly reduced, resulting in lower beef prices. Furthermore, beef producers and processors had difficulty harvesting and shipping their products because of lockdown situations, reduced labour force, restrictions on animal movement within and across the country, and changes in local and international export market legislation. These conditions harmed the beef industry by reducing beef production, processing, and distribution facilities.
